Help with muffins

My husband & I own a small cafe,, We make a jumbo morning glory muffin filled with nuts, craisins & dried fruits. When they come out of the oven they are flat on top. Any suggestions?

How old is your baking soda??? That would be my first thought...

Your oven must be very hot before you put the muffins in. The pre-heating is crucial to muffins that crown. Put the muffins in the hot oven and then turn the heat down to recipe specs.

What's the one you're using? It will be easier to figure out what could have gone wrong.

Thanks, we've tried that. We always make sure that the oven has been pre-heated at least 30-45 minutes before baking.

Perhaps they are just too dense for them to crown...

After I had the whole thing typed I pressed a wrong key & deleted it all. Here it goes again:
16 eggs
2 qts. each of; white sugar, brown sugar, milk & salad oil.
10.5 Table. baking powder.
2 Tb. salt
40 cups flour.
We have a large Hobart mixer. Mix together then add 75 oz. crushed pineapple, mixed nuts & craisins.

When I prepare the giant muffins, I only grease the bottom of the tin. Not the sides. The crown is beautiful.
